Could your clinic, facility, business or institution use some help in working with LGBTQ seniors? Consider letting our specialists provide an in-service to your staff. Our training is tailored to suit your needs, and is designed to increase cultural competency surrounding LGBTQ elder care issues in a variety of professional settings. Please call (713) 485-5056 to schedule a session.

SPRY participants have access to all of the programs and services available at the Center. The Montrose Diner, and all social and educational activities are provided free-of-charge.
